Life Story of Linda Hunt

Veteran character actress Linda Hunt was born on April 2, 1945, in Morristown, New Jersey, to Elsie Doying and Raymond Davy Hunt. She attended the Interlochen Arts Academy and the Goodman School of Drama in Chicago (now part of DePaul University). Her film debut was in Robert Altman's Popeye (1980). She played the role of Oxblood Oxheart's mother. Soon afterward, she appeared in what would be an Oscar-winning performance: the role of male Chinese-Australian photographer Billy Kwan in Ein Jahr in der Hölle (1982).

Linda Hunt in Dune - Der Wüstenplanet (1984)

The first actor to have won an Academy Award portraying a member of the opposite sex, she won the Best Actress in a Supporting Role Oscar for her role as Billy Kwan in Ein Jahr in der Hölle (1982). Note this was not Linda Hunt playing a woman pretending to be a man, like Barbra Streisand did in Yentl (1983) or, in reverse, as Dustin Hoffman did in Tootsie (1982), but Hunt playing a man in a serious drama.

Linda Hunt and Dave Chapman in Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)

Has twice played male roles that did not feature or reference her actual female status: Billy Kwan in Ein Jahr in der Hölle (1982) and The Management in Carnivàle (2003) (who, though mostly unseen, is often referred to by other characters as male).
